Work with a Realtor. He or she has access to property data.

There are some websites that have the owner's name, you probably have to join and pay.

Or go to The Office of Assessor, owner's names are public records.


How do I find out the name of the owner of a particular property?

The Office of Assessor maintains the property assessment roll, which lists the assessee (normally the property owner). The roll may be inspected by the public at the main office or regional offices.

Your questions is posted in the "Bel Air"section but has no property attached. I seriously doubt a home in the neighborhood would rent for that amount. 9,000 would be more likely or more. ... more

Jeremy Weinberg answered:
Most Brokers will require you to join the board of Realtors and the MLS in order to be active with them (Average $1,500 annually) including the split to your broker which is 60/40 on average. Unless you are producing alot of sales annually for the brokerage, they are not reluctant to cut you a better commission split on your own purchase as they are still taking on the same liability.

You might want to consider a real estate referral company to place your license temporary for the sale of your property. In this type of company you pay nothing to the board or the MLS, you will be referred to a buyers agent who will handle the entire sale and pay back a "referral fee" typically 25% of the total commission.

If your license is in Florida take a look at This company pays back top dollar on referral fees to their agents.

You need to go with a Realtor who has actually seen your house. To quote you off a price range isn't fair to you or the agent. With almost no description of your property (except the address,) how can someone give you a number that you can rely on?

To get the most $$$ for your home, you need to invite three Realtors to "comp out" your property. We need to see all of the fantastic upgrades that you have done and what makes your home special. After that and a brief conversation, you and I can come up with a price that is fair to you and get's you the most money realistically.

Always remember though, Realtors don't set the price, the market does. Here is my contact info so we can schedule a meeting:

Although the Bel Air fire did go over this area, 1971 Stradella Road was vacant land, later developed as part of a subdivision. No structure existed here until 1968. I was the first owner/resident in this house.
I believe Burt Lancaster lived in Beverly Hills, above the Beverly Hills Hotel.

I know that in the state of Texas, an agent with an expired license should not be doing any real estate business. Therefore the answer to your question is no. It is not legal. CALL TREC's hot line to verify. ... more

Brian Byhower answered:
Out of curiosity, has Tracey contacted any of the 15+ agents that have repied? Seems to me that questions are asked and help is offered, but nothing happens. Have any agents on here ever closed a transaction with any of these leads? I'm just curious. Please don't get all bent out of shape and answer with "there are on dumb questions" that's not what I'm asking. Thanks all. ... more

Funny you should ask that question , I would too if I were you. As a matter of coincidence I showed your
Moms house last week and think its great. I absolutely love the grounds. My buyer did not like it. As much , but I think it to be great . Your agent there Neil has had the listing awhile and I see the decline
In asking price from the MLS listing price( Neil , by the way is very nice, courteous and appears to be a good agent)However I imagine that the $19 and $14 were on the high side , since homes are selling
At the right price now and there is not that much inventory. I see you have it just under $10 now.
I also see very negative comments in your response section about Neil. I certainly would not listen to them as those agents just want the listing and nothing else.
Stick with Neil , he is very professional.
2 thoughts for you , I think your home needs more marketing exposure( we have a lot of buyers
Coming in from Europe) as in international exposure . If you have Neil send me over high Res photos
Of your home, I would be happy to have your home posted over there( no cost to you),I have another
Thought about more outside( driveby exposure) for u but I can discuss that with Neil with your. Permission. Stick with Neil,do alittle more marketing via us and you will probably sell it.
Regards Victor Kaminoff ( www. Victor and speak to Neil, he won't mind the help.

You could just get a rental in plain ole' Beverly Hills & have $$ left over to save up for a down payment on a real sweet pad.

Let me know if you'd like me to email you some great rental listings for maybe less than $25-40k/mo.

Shoot me an email directly if you want to talk about this some more, I don't look back on this same Trulia thread for answers posted after mine. You could also set up a search to look for rentals on my web link below.

I did not see anyone say that the homwowner has to qualify for the short sale, where a foreclosure will happen if you stop paying your mortgage long enough.
